My sister-in-law surprised me with a coffee cup. She said when she saw the cup she thought of me. I love it. It is a large size cup and will be great for my morning coffee. It was perfect timing for the cup too, as I have decide to tackle my scraps of fabric. I’m making my first scrap quilt.
Picture above is the Work in Progress on my design wall. I have 236 blocks sewn out of 846 needed for the pattern. Each square is sewn individually and the seams are meticulously matched. Just saw a video by Jo at Jo’s Country Junction about strip piecing. I will try that method on my next scrappy quilt.
The spacing between blocks is where sashing will go. The pattern I am following has white for the sashing (see picture below.) I’m considering denim instead. I have jeans I was going to cut up and use one day. This may be the project.
Well, I put some denim up on design wall to sample the idea of using denim (see picture below). I decided the white would work better for sashing. Bert, my husband, is in favor of white too. So white it is.
I love my design wall. It saves me so much time and effort to see ideas before I sew. More time to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Thank you Julie.
